Midnight Story

October 28, 2012

Her words do not make sense to me and she speaks at a thousand words per minute.

The girl that lived in my head has returned. I thought I'd controlled her, kept her locked in a room and swallowed the key whole but she is persistent and eventually found herself out. You can't imagine how much effort I've tried to keep her away but she keeps on haunting me.

I look at this girl with utmost pity--she's weak, she doesn't react to logic at times, she can't even control her own emotions. Yet there is something about her that binds us together--as though we were supposed to from the beginning.

Her words do not make sense to me and she speaks at a thousand words per minute. When she finally stops to take a breath, her words start to make a bit of sense.

I screamed. I did not want to hear anymore. I closed my eyes. Tried to hope and pray that this was not happening and wished that when I opened my eyes, it was all just my imagination.

I waited three seconds, then slowly opened my eyes.

She wasn't there and the room that I was in changed back to the way it was.

I stood up heading towards the door. But just as I was about to touch the door knob, a voice whispers in my ear "We are one. You can't escape me..."
